A rare find: One of the few children's books that helps kids understand the absence of a parent, whether the daddy is deployed as a member of the military or working away from home for an extended period (such as a firefighter or working in government or helping others).

The author, Kristin Ayyar, carefully addresses the questions and concerns of the child while offering positive ways to look forward to daddy's return. However, it doesn't sugarcoat the fact that separation of any kind is tough for a family.

Our family benefited from the suggestions as well. What a refreshing change from the "preachy" books that don't tell it like it is. Highly recommended.
